Run Amok Books has been around since 2017. Our imprint, Run Amok Crime, launched in 2022. We exists to fill a hole in this country’s cultural fabric left by corporately run publishers, who make editorial choices based solely on marketability and bottom line. We don’t. But we’re glad they do because it gives rise to a need—a need for small, independent presses—like ours. Small presses fill the gaps and shore up the edges, the fringes. That’s where we live. We tend toward the obscure and the strange, the irreverent and the profane. These are the things that matter to us at Run Amok Books. These are the things we want to bring to readers. And that, friends, is why we exist.
